Mozart’s Mysterious Masterpiece and World Premiere at Snape.

Ipswich Choral Society with Music Director Robin Walker return to Snape
following their hugely successful performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah in 2017.
The concert on 6 April features a mostly Mozart programme including his famous
Requiem and a world premiere of The Affirming Flame by Tom Randle.

Shrouded in mystery, the commissioning of the unfinished Requiem written at the time
of Mozart’s death in 1791 has always fascinated the musical world. Mozart’s Requiem
is a choral masterpiece and hugely popular with performers and audiences alike. For
their performance at Snape, Ipswich Choral Society is delighted that their President,
the international conductor Cem Mansur, will be joining them as guest conductor.

Inspired by the Ipswich Remembers performance when he was invited to sing with
Ipswich Choral Society last March, Grammy award winning tenor and composer Tom Randle
is thrilled that his new oratorio The Affirming Flame will be premiered at Snape. The five
part oratorio uses text from poets such as Siegfried Sassoon and Carl Sandburg,
and ‘The Parcel’ from local poet Pam Job of the Suffolk Poetry Society.
